Thorax (th)—an autosomal gene in Drosophila pseudo-obscura

  • S. S. Prabhu


A complete description of the new autosomal gene in Drosophila pseudoobscura-thorax (th) that partly overlaps wild type and affects the thorax, and its appendages, along with its linkage data is given. It is shown to be located on the third chromosome-22·4 units to the right of orange (or).
